But what do you eat in this icy setting you ask? Why hot pot of course! We couldn't think of a more appropriate meal to be had whilst sitting inside ice, though you'll probably want to eat a little quicker than normal before your meat and veg start freezing onto your chopsticks.
Now is prime time to book for the Harbin ice festival, and we have Private and Mini-Group packages out now which include flights, transfers, and all the icy winter highlights, including Sun Island, Ice & Snow World, the Siberian Tiger Park, and the historic Russian Orthodox Saint Sophia cathedral. The packages also include accommodation at the luxury Shangri-La Harbin, and if you book the mini-group tour we'll throw in a hotpot dinner at the cool Ice Palace restaurant! Just remember to rug up!
